Added Home Insurance Protection: Advantage Elite Extended Endorsement

At MAPFRE, we know your home is much more than just a place to live. It is an investment you want to protect for many years to come.

When you insure your home with us, a standard homeowner’s policy will usually cover your losses should certain events like a major fire, heavy rain, or heavy snow damage your home’s interior or exterior. A standard policy will also usually cover your losses should acts of vandalism occur.

But not everything is covered under a standard homeowner’s policy. That’s why you might want to consider purchasing MAPFRE’s optional Advantage Elite Extended endorsement.

This endorsement is designed to complement MAPFRE’s standard policy and is available for insureds with base policies only. The cost for the Advantage Elite Extended endorsement is 15% of the base premium plus $35 annually.

So what does this endorsement add to your level of coverage? The Advantage Elite Extended endorsement provides coverage for the loss, theft or damage of high value items like jewelry, artwork and furs.

Also covered under the endorsement is home systems protection and service line coverage should your household appliances become damaged due to an electrical or mechanical failure. Covered systems and appliances include HVAC systems, water heaters, kitchen appliances, and personal computers.

No matter what type of homeowner’s coverage you end up purchasing, keep in mind that things typically not covered by your policy would be:

  • General wear and tear
  • Damage from lack of maintenance
  • Damage caused by remodeling your home

Make sure you have the right coverage for your home by talking to an independent agent in your state. If you’re not insured with MAPFRE yet and live in Massachusetts, get a fast, free home insurance quote today to see how much you could save!
